Been reading and researching for 3 months. Never owned a diesel before, and really dont need one, but I want one for possible future towing.
Found a truck within 150 miles of home. Its a 12 f350 lariat loaded with everything accept heated rear seats, 20" wheels and two tone. They are willing to take 11695 off sticker for this truck. Listed mid 63's. My questions are, first, this truck has been sitting on the lot for 6 months now. Should I be questioning anything about this 6.7 after sitting for so long???????? Secondly, Im pretty certain, they wont budge another inch on the pricing, but should I be expecting them to? For an extra grand, it appears I could fly to Texas and pick up a loaded 13. What would you do?? By the way, Houston is 1300 miles from me.
If this dealership was, say, 13 off of the 2012 list, I would be all over it. I know they wont get there though.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
If it was me I would skip it and get a Fresh 2013! Diesels aren't suppose to sit, and think of the test drives already, God on knows what the Lookers have done to this truck. Good luck and keep us posted.
